    Many of our community members wish to show their support for Hyperledger by identifying themselves as members of the community in their profiles on social media and their email signatures and even business cards. This page identifies the different roles in our community and provides guidelines on how to accurately represent yourself in your communications. In general, the rule is to be as specific as possible so that you don't confuse people about your role.

    Community Roles


    First of all, everybody involved in the Hyperledger community is a supporter of the Hyperledger community and should proudly identify themselves as a Hyperledger Supporter or Hyperledger Community Member. We really mean everybody. Even if you're only just a fan of what we are doing at Hyperledger, you are a Hyperledger Supporter. Showing your support that way is an easy way for all of us to build up Hyperledger and help ensure its future.

    Hyperledger Champion

    Are you someone who attends meetups and other community events and gives presentations on Hyperledger technology and/or helps others get going with the tech? Do you write blog posts or create videos about Hyperledger tools? Are you helping people in your region learn about Hyperledger by taking part in a Hyperledger Chapter or by translating material into other languages? Consider showing your support by identifying yourself as a Hyperledger Champion. A champion is someone who goes over and above simple participation to spread the knowledge and reach new people and new markets with Hyperledger technology.

This is an orientation guide to help members contribute to our group.

Why Join?

Learning materials development is a field that is high in demand and growing. 

News media is always reporting about the big problem of skills gaps.

Creating quality learning material is not easy.  

Its much more than creating a "How-to" guide with steps on how to do something.

The objective of good learning material is not just conveying information.

Roadblocks to good material include confusion, boredom, and declining motivation.

Good learning material development include skills such as project management,  effective writing, graphic design, psychology, and some programming.

level of motivation is the desire of a reward multiplied  by the probability of obtaining that reward.

understanding that formula and how it applies to our group will help membership and material quality.

How to contribute

Get an understanding of Hyperledger Greenhouse that includes Framework (Primary Hyperledger products ) and Tools (products that help in the use of Hyperledger Frameworks)

Pick a Hyperledger Greenhouse project to work on.  

An alternative to Hyperledger Greenhouse project is special interest groups,  use cases, and other similar projects.

Another alternative is to look for current problems that nobody is working on or thinking about needed projects that currently do not exist.

An example is to create or contribute to internal use learning material such as how to use git/github, confluence, rocket-chat

          (I still don't how how to initiate a direct message ), zoom (such things as record and sharing screen)

Learn enough about that project to contribute to existing learning material or start your own new learning material project

For existing learning projects, go to the Resource page and look for exact things to do  (need to list out tasks to do)

If there is no to-do list for a project, ask the project liaison to give you a task   (need to include project contact information)

Another thing to do is to sign up as an available tester of material   (need to create sign up sheet for testers) 

A good way to find work is to look at projects with any status except for complete   (make sure the status of project is up to date)


What’s the purpose?

The Hyperledger (LMDWG) Learning Materials Working Group’s mission is to support the Hyperledger community by maintaining a Recourse Library that houses accurate and current learning materials.  Bi-weekly calls foster open communication and focus on identifying opportunities for near-term collaboration between participants. These conversations could lead to a Learning Material resources for the Hyperledger community.

Do you need to be a Hyperledger member?

No, this group is intended to promote the exploration of Hyperledger's blockchain application support materials and is open to everyone interested in positively collaborating. To be a Wiki maintainer, a Linux login is necessary.
